Jordan's Top Ten Movies of 2014

23 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Spoiler alert, but Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) was, in fact, not my favorite film of the year. I figured I should just get that out of the way at the start for those of you who feared I might have the same #1 film as Brad and Mike, both of whom listed Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's latest as their favorite film from 2014. Don't get me wrong, I really liked Birdman, but in a surprise to even myself, it didn't make my list, which I think you can pretty much chalk up to the surprisingly good year 2014 wound up being. I was certainly among the scoffers last fall about it being a bit of down year, and just a month or so ago I was of the opinion 2014 offered a lot of films to like, but very few to love. After going through and finalizing my list, I'd like to retract that statement. »

New on Netflix: February 2015

27 January 2015 3:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

What will February bring to Netflix? "House of Cards" returns for its much awaited third season, but not until Feb. 27. If you can't wait for your Kevin Spacey fix until then, "Now: In the Wings on a World Stage" (2014), a documentary of Spacey starring in a production of Shakespeare's "Richard III," is available on Feb. 1.

And the 2004 "King Arthur," starring Clive Owen and Keira Knightley, isn't exactly Shakespearean, but look at how many great actors -- like Mads Mikkelsen, Ioan Gruffudd, Hugh Dancy and Joel Edgerton -- have gone on to much bigger things.

You can also stream "Joe," one of Nicolas Cage's best films in recent years; the overlooked indie "The Brothers Bloom" with Mark Ruffalo, Adrien Brody and Rachel Weisz; and the barely-in-theaters thriller "The Two Faces of January," starring Viggo Mortensen and Kirsten Dunst.

Here's a much larger rundown of what's new on Netflix in February 2015, provided by Netflix. »

Joss Whedon says it's "very doubtful" he will direct Avengers: Infinity War

27 January 2015 3:02 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Joss Whedon has admitted that it is "very doubtful" that he will direct Avengers: Infinity War.

The filmmaker told Empire that he is unlikely to return to the Marvel franchise for a while after this year's Avengers: Age of Ultron, as he is looking to focus on his own projects.

"I couldn't imagine doing this again," he said. "It's enormously hard, and it be, by then, a good five years since I created anything that was completely my own. So it's very doubtful that I would take on the two-part Infinity War movie that would eat up the next four years of my life."

He added: "I obviously still want to be a part of the Marvel Universe - I love these guys - but it ain't easy. This year has been more like running three shows than any year of my life. It is bonkers."

StreamFix: 6 Oscar Frontrunners in Great Roles on Netflix

26 January 2015 5:31 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Newsflash: We still have awhile before the Oscars. It's like a month away. But we can prepare anyway by revisiting the greatest hits of our leading nominees in the acting categories. Put on your angriest Annette Bening face and join us for this trip into prestige pictures currently streaming on Netflix. "The Kids are All Right" (Julianne Moore) Julianne Moore didn't pick up a nomination, but costars Annette Bening and Mark Ruffalo did in this family drama (with funny moments) about a lesbian couple attempting to embrace the new-found presence of their kids' sperm donor. "The Kids are All Right" feels like a lost James L. Brooks gem set in 2010, and every performance has endearing and (intentionally) maddening moments. Julianne might play the most conflicted character at all, and she wears that indecision and personal guilt well.  "My Week With Marilyn" (Eddie Redmayne) Is this a great movie? No. In fact, »

Aaron Taylor Johnson talks Quicksilver, East-European accents and being compared to X-Men: Days of Future Past

26 January 2015 3:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve already brought you the two Empire covers for Avengers: Age of Ultron, some images and a few notes from Joss Whedon talking about not directing Avengers: Infinity War and threatening to kill all of the Avengers. And now we bring you some notes from an interview with Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who will be playing Quicksilver in the movie.

“He’s very agitated because everything runs too slowly for him,” he tells Empire via Cbm. “He’s quick at everything. He’s quick to lose his temper.”

“It’s more about Pietro and Wanda together, a yin/yang where he’s very physical and very protective of her and she’s very internal and always mothering him,” he says on his relationship with Scarlet Witch, played by fellow Godzilla star Elizabeth Olsen. “Pietro doesn’t fricking trust anybody. The only one he cares for and at the end of the »

Joss Whedon talks the fate of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: Age of Ultron, “I f***ing kill them”

26 January 2015 11:44 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If there is one thing that Joss Whedon is famous for, it’s killing off popular characters to get a reaction from his audience. Last time round it was Agent Coulson, but who will it be this time in Avengers: Age of Ultron?

Well, in an interview Empire, Whedon clearly has deadly plans for not just one member, but the whole team.

“I f*cking kill them. All of them. I do it. Marvel don’t even realise it. When they see the final cut, they’ll be like, ‘Omigod! What are we going to do for Phase 3? We literally have no one! Except Ant-Man!’ They’re going to be so pissed.”

Of course, Whedon is kidding. Right?

Emma Watson To Tackle Tale As Old As Time In ‘Beauty And The Beast’

26 January 2015 10:15 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Though she’s taken care to branch out from the fantasy world of Harry Potter which made her name, Emma Watson is heading back to a land of magical kingdoms for the umpteenth screen version of Beauty And The Beast.

This will be a bit different in that it appears to be a live action transfer of the animated classic, with Disney again producing. A pointless endeavour some might argue, but Watson is a perfect choice for such a high profile role as Belle. She gained respect around the world last year for her gender equality speech at the Un and at least it means we won’t be getting a bland, antiseptic actress belting out tracks like Something There.

Watson herself has taken to Facebook to express her excitement:

It was such a big part of my growing up, it almost feels surreal that I’ll get to dance »

Joss Whedon Doesn't Want to Direct 'Avengers 3' and 4

26 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in October, a report surfaced that Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Joe Russo and Anthony Russo will likely take over for Joss Whedon as the directors of The Avengers 3 and The Avengers 4. This was two weeks prior to Marvel announcing that Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Part 2 will hit theaters in 2018 and 2019. At that time, the studio never confirmed a director for either sequel. Today, Joss Whedon himself revealed to Empire that he will most likely not be at the helm for this epic undertaking.

"I couldn't imagine doing this again. It's enormously hard, and it [will] be, by then, a good five years since I created anything that was completely my own. So it's very doubtful that I would take on the two-part Infinity War movie that would eat up the next four years of my life. I obviously still want to be a part of the Marvel »

Mark Ruffalo Tweets SAG Awards Acceptance Speech from Bed in London

26 January 2015 9:13 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Mark Ruffalo couldn’t make it to Sunday night’s SAG Awards ceremony to accept in person his prize for outstanding male actor in a TV movie or miniseries, but thanks to Twitter, he was able to share a makeshift acceptance speech from his bed in London. He’s currently across the pond filming “Now You See Me: The Second Act.”

Ruffalo — who beat out Billy Bob Thornton, Benedict Cumberbatch, Adrien Brody and Richard Jenkins in the category — wrote that his wife and children woke him up with the news four hours before he had to be back on set.

Ha ha ha! Sunny and my kids just woke me up to tell me I won a SAG award. Have to be at work in 4 hours. Thank you! @SAGawards

'Avengers 2' Magazine Covers; Joss Whedon Talks Ultron

26 January 2015 8:35 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With Avengers: Age of Ultron hitting theaters in just a few short months, the main cast members have all assembled on the cover of Empire Magazine's latest issue, including Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson). Empire has also released a limited edition collector's cover that gives us a closer look at Ultron (James Spader). Director Joss Whedon also revealed that he is currently working on a number of Ultron scenes in post-production, joking that he has taken the villain's side, for the moment.

"I've been working on a lot of Ultron scenes, so I'm very anti-Avengers right now. You can't write someone if you don't love them and I've come to the conclusion that Ultron is right. The Avengers need to die."

"Birdman" Flies High at SAG Awards, Eddie Redmayne Surprises

26 January 2015 7:37 AM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

If you're betting on "Boyhood" to win big at the upcoming Academy Awards, think again! Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" was deemed to be the big Oscar frontrunner but a double-dose of guild awards over the weekend tamed those prospects down. First, the Producers Guild of America gave their top honor to Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman," and the Screen Actors Guild followed suit!

"Birdman" took home the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture award! But, since the movie is about acting, this award is just fitting.

My biggest surprise, and it'a welcome surprise indeed, was "The Theory of Everything's" Eddie Redmayne taking home the Outstanding Male Actor trophy. Sorry Michael Keaton! I think Redmayne truly gave the Performance of the Year award!

The usual suspects took home the movie acting awards with wins for Julianne Moore for Best Actress in "Still Alice," J.K. Simmons for Best Supporting Actor for "Whiplash, »
